William Henry Heale (24 April 1859 – 24 April 1907) was an English first-class cricketer.

Heale was born at Hemel Hempstead in April 1859. He was educated at Harrow School,[1] before going up to Balliol College, Oxford.[2] While studying at Oxford, he made a single appearance in first-class cricket for Oxford University against Middlesex at Lord's in 1881.[3] Batting twice in the match, he was dismissed for a single run by George Burton in the Oxford first-innings, while in their second-innings he was dismissed for 9 runs by Clement Cottrell.[4] After graduating in 1883, he was ordained in the Church of England. He was the curate of Gamlingay from 1884–87 and the curate of a church at Walsall from 1887–92.[2] His first role as a vicar was at the Holy Trinity Church in North Kensington from 1892–95.[2] Heale played minor counties cricket for Hertfordshire in 1895, making three appearances in the Minor Counties Championship.[5] He returned to being a curate at Hartshill, Staffordshire from 1891–1900, before serving as the vicar of Wolstanton from 1900–06 and Penn from 1906 until his death at Lambeth in April 1907.[2]
